UPDATED : Afro Thunda found an explanation, bless him !
In fact, there were NOT the tank scans, it was a manual repack of the magazine scans with the additional tank material (cover, etc…).
I’m disappointed, but not enraged anymore, I think it’s better that way ;)

Thank you VERY much Afro Thunda, for that clarification !

Case closed.
I still leave the question below for the curious persions, however, do NOT bother yourself with replying, this is not needed anymore :)

(I hope you know of my Nana To Kaoru superpack, right ?)

I could use your help, on this topic.
So, please, if you’re into Nana To Kaoru, or if you know stuff about it, read the rest of this post, thank you so much in advance :)

You see, I was given download links for the volumes 3 and 4, tank version.
So far, so good, until now I only had the magazine versions for the chapters found in the tanks volumes 3 and 4, it should have been an improvement, a tank has better scans, higher resolution pictures sometimes, possible little updates in the drawings, and the like.
BUT I felt the pictures were kinda small.

Well, I checked. And I RAGEd.

The only scans I found of the Japanese tanks for the volumes 3-4 have a vertical dimension of 1400 px.
Their English version on my disk has been downsized to 1200 px.

I don’t know who edited these tanks with the English version coming from the magazines, but I doubt that or those persons could be unwise enough to deliberately reduce the picture dimensions. Right ? RIGHT ?

So, well, here’s my question, @ anyone able to help : would you have a full-res version of these volumes 3 and 4, if – sadly, this is an “if” – such a full-res version exists ?
I didn’t write any insult, because this would be quite ungrateful of me, and not everyone gives a fuck about 200 pixels more or less, but, well, I can’t hide I am relatively pissed off. Here’s to praying there’s a non-resized English version out there ! :o

Before someone asks, I'm not updating my Nana To Kaoru superpack with these two volumes before that mess is sorted out :)

Just saw this post had two ratings, two times five stars.

Err, thanks, but, well, what's worth giving a rating anyway ? o_O

People rate anything nowadays; it's some sort of rating-frenzy. Anyway, sorry, I don't have them ):

I checked, and I have the 1200px version myself. Did some checking (nothing extensive) but I didnt see a different version out there. Found a full size raw, but thats as close as I got.

So after looking a little bit into this, I see what's happened here. It's highly likely (ie. 100% positive) that all you've gotten is the magazine versions of volumes 3 and 4 plus the extras (covers and whatnot) that come with the tankoubon. The chapters themselves are no different from the ones you're already sharing, so there's no need for you to really share what you've been given. Long story short, those aren't the tank versions of the chapters.

Hope this info quells your confusion.

The confusion was quelled, it's good to know you can count on reliable people like you :)

(and like others too, heh, I don't want to sound rude @ everyone, OK ? ^^)

I just reread the last sentence. You want full res english scans? well that will be another story, i only have the raws, like you i suppose. I wanted to edit them with the english scans but though: this is nana, there should already be someone out there who will redo the tank versions. Do they really look so bad?

My question is, do you want the english scans at 1400px or the japanese raws at 1400px, cause the japanese raws are fairly easy to find, but the english, I highly doubt the team who did it would do 1200 and 1400. And why would they downsize? Maybe because of the grey, maybe because their team uses that format as their main size. Many team still use the 1200 format for reader’s sake, etc. From what I read you already have the japanese raws. As for the readers, well not all team have the bandwidth necessary to have all their manga at 1400px, since it consumes more bandwidth.

As far as i know Nana to Kaoru is translated by some group and released ver soon on this site: http://crazytje.be/Latest
Pictures you find are 1200px becouse they need to be viewed online and so size matters. For bigger ones i would suggest contacting raw provider also from site above.
Oh an by the way they have new Arashi chapter

Sorry, kind of off topic, but I just wanted to mention there's a Nana to Kaoru (Anime OAV) out that's subbed. Only covers the first couple "breathers". It was released a little less than a month ago.

I watched it, it's good. It's erotic and ecchi not really "hentai". Just wanted to let you know, just in case you might want to share it for a change even though this is a hentai manga site.
